The conference will use its overarching theme of “Innovative Solutions for Future Needs” to stimulate high-level interactions and discussions on a wide range of marine engineering and technology topics relevant to the international community. Delegates will be presented with a unique opportunity to gain insight into future technologies and developments on topics ranging from shipbuilding technology to marine resources and sustainability. Taking place at the innovative and forward-thinking Military Technological College in Muscat, Oman, this is a fantastic opportunity to attend a high level technical international conference located in the strikingly beautiful Gulf of Oman with its rich maritime history dating back more than a millennium.
The programme will also be accredited for Continuing Professional Development (CPD).
